The government of Uganda had declared that Thursday, May 12, 2016, would be yet another non-working public holiday in Uganda, this time on account of the upcoming swearing-in ceremony for President Yoweri Museveni.
Earlier this year (2016-02-10), the government of Uganda had declared Wednesday, February 24, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Uganda, on account of the upcoming election of Local Government Leaders, barely a week after it had declared both Tuesday and Thursday, February 16 and 18, 2016, as one-off non-working public holidays, in honour of Archbishop Janani Luwum (2016-02-09) and on account of the recent presidential polls (2016-02-10), respectively.
Five years ago (2011-05-09), Uganda's public service minister, Henry Kajura, had similarly announced that the Ugandan Government had declared Thursday, May 12, 2011, as a one-off public holiday on the occasion of the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Yoweri Museveni, following a bumper crop of, one-off, election-related public holidays (2011-03-11, 2011-03-07, 2011-02-21, and 2011-02-15).
